So, What is a MACARON Exactly?

I don't suppose many people around North Western Ontario know what a Macaron is. MaCaRon, is a fabulously simple, yet rich pastry. Most people praise their delicate nature, but me, I love the colors!

French Macarons are traditional egg-white, almond and sugar pastry dating back to the 18th Century.

Macarons are smooth, domed topped cookies, with a ruffle of almond around the base (middle for the sandwich). Connoisseurs prize a delicate, egg shell-like crust that yields to a moist and airy interior." What's more, is that they can come in various flavors, depending on the tastes (like Truffle, Maple, Vanilla, Raspberry, etc.).

The truth is simple, I ♥ Macarons!
